romney can make the case that there will be no change in the next four years because obama didn't deliver the change he promised four years ago, that he said he would lower the unemployment rate to 5.6%, but we've now had our 43rd month of above 8% unemployment. he said that family incomes would go up, but they've gone down $4,000 under his watch. he said that bush was unpatriotic for adding four trillion to the debt over eight years, he's added five trillion over just four years. so he needs -- americans don't want to have more of the same, and obama really tonight has to show how his second term would be different than the first instead of this forward stuff that we've been hearing from him. megyn: you know, joe, i took a look at those fox news polls, and marc's right, the overwhelming majority of americans want change, they don't want to stay the course, but the question is, who does that mean? whose policies do hay want to change? it's something like 95% of republicans want to change course, 51% of democrats and 77% of independents, but when you drill even deeper and ask, well, who's

reaction from the obama administration to the uprising, if you will, in iran, a couple of years ago, when there were protests. people were angry and the u.s. was on the sidelines, the president did not directly speak out and the explanation that the administration at the time gave was that the opposition didn't want this to appear to be the opposition to the ayatollahs, standing up in iran, with the backing of united states. that could have been counterproductive. as a result, the obama administration was pretty silent. at the time now where romney is going after him on that, i think there were a few areas where there were some significant differences, but on the whole, after you get through some of the angry rhetoric, there is a lot of agreement between obama and romney, one area of disagreement on arming the syrian rebels. another area of disagreement, how far will iran be able to go in its nuclear weapons capability, the capability of developing a bomb as opposed to actually having a bomb. and the third was on russia. he twice in a speech singled out vladimir putin as a basically a foe
